I know, it's been a very, very long time since I actually posted anything proper on this blog. /(-_-)\
To be honest, I feel really bad about that, because you guys are always supporting me and reading the things I write, and my view count has actually reached over 16k and to me, that's just INSAAAAANE~!
Today I'm going to be reviewing a replica of a GLW 'Rhapsody' wig that I brought on eBay~~
As most of you will know, Gothic Lolita Wigs sell some amazing looking wigs,
but their prices are super duper high, and I've been getting into Lolita,
but I really don't have the funds to spend around £50 on a wig... So I got a replica uwu
Unfortunately, I actually don't have the link anymore... ToT (so organized)
But, if you search 'Harajuku wig' on eBay, you'll find loads that are like it xD
This is basically exactly the same wig, just a different seller \(^o^)/
I ordered the wig on around February 10th, and it arrived on the 28th, postage was FREE♥
meaning that it took only 18 days for the order to process
and then for the wig to be dispatched from China, go through UK customs
and then be delivered to my home~! That's super fast! \(^o^)/
So for shipping and delivery time I'll give the wig a big...
5/5 ♥ ~
This wig only cost around £11, so I'll admit I was skeptical about the quality,
I've had some quite expensive wigs that have turned up and been awful quality so, I was expecting similar...
But actually, I have to say that the wig is very, very good quality, especially for a cheap price~!
When the wig arrived, it was packaged in a net, and also put inside a plastic air-tight bag
It hadn't been folded or anything, so there aren't any kinks in the wig, and all the hair was neatly arranged...
When I took the wig out of the bag, it all poofed out to what the wig looks like in the stock image:
But it held its shape well, even through being compressed in the air-tight bag and the net~
The hair feels very soft, almost like real Human hair~! When brushed, hardly any hair comes out~~
Although, in the listing it was said to be 'heat resistant' but in reality, it isnt xD
(Luckily I didn't try to straighten the actual 'wig', I cut in straight bangs and straightened them...
I was a little bit disappointed that the listing had lied about it being heat resistant...
But, luckily, you can't tell that the hair is burnt from appearance, it just feels a bit dry now T-T
So, for quality I'm going to give this wig...
4/5 ♥ ~
I wore this wig the other day for a 'themed' photo set~ The theme was 'Angel x Demon'~!
So prepare yourself for a self-promoting photo spam xD
Here's the main image for the photo set~ I spent the most amount of time working on this one~♥
As you can see in the photo, the wig is shiny, but not overly shiny...
(Also, I was sat in front of a window when the sun was highest in the sky so it was very bright)
I think the wig actually looks quite natural♥ I'm very glad about that because I wear wigs a lot!
So I like it when people actually ask "is that your real hair?" rather than "why are you wearing a wig?" xD
I really love the colour of this wig ♥♥ It's such a cute colour, and it really subtly blends into white~
I've never really had any desire to dip-dye or 'ombre' my hair, but this wig makes it look so nice!
(I'm actually dying my hair a pastel pink again soon so maybe I'll lighten the ends~)
Excuse my ridiculously pale face xD Like I said before, I'm in direct light so I look paler aha
I actually think this wig really flatters my skin tone as well \(^o^)/
I was worried, because I'm quite pale/yellow, whether a light coloured wig would wash me out...
But luckily, it didn't♥
Here's a derpy face pose xD It's a little bit like a duck-face haha~
Here it is with my Angel x Demon co-ords~ I think it suits Demon more ehehe~
I preferred the entire Demon outfit, because it features a dress I made myself ^w^
I'm far from being a seamstress, and in fact the dress isn't even sewn together, just pinned xD
But still, I like it (=^-^=) (Excuse my face in the first picture I look so shocked haha)
I really have fallen in love with this wig, it's actually now my favourite wig~!
When it first arrived, I didn't like the bangs because it was a side-swept bang, but now that I've cut it...
I really think it's such a nice wig, and amazing quality for the price!♥ ~
It's nice to have a wig that makes me feel a little bit like a bubblegum princess haha
I want to get one in pink, but I'll have pink hair soon anyway so there's no point xD But it's sooo niceeee
So, for my final score, I'll give this wig...
4.5/5 ♥ ~
I think it's a really pretty wig, but I can't give it full marks because:
1. it's shorter than the listing describes it being, and also,
2. it's not actually heat resistant, and I could've really damaged the wig if it hadn't been the bangs T-T
So although the wig is good quality and cheap, I feel the seller wasn't truly honest about the product...
Okay guys, that concludes this review~! I'm sorry it's been a while since I last posted. T-T
I feel so bad for neglecting this blog, but I had all of my final exams and now...
I AM DONE WITH SCHOOL! ❀❀❀
That's right, for 2 entire months, I have nooooo schoooool~!
